Frequently Asked Questions
At Sydney Smiles Dental, Dr Lee recommends seeing your dentist every 6 months. The key to having great oral health is maintenance and prevention. Prevention and maintenance in dentistry is the best way to save money in the long run. When you see your dentist every 6 months, it allows for potential problems to be picked up early before it becomes too late, painful and costly.
Bleeding gums can be a sign of gingivitis. This can occur when there is a build-up of plaque around the gums. If the plaque is not removed, it can cause the gums to swell and bleed. It is best to see your dentist once every six months for regular check-up cleanings to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Please contact us on (02) 9410 2001 for any further questions.
Prevention and early intervention is the key to having healthy teeth. It is recommended to get dental treatment done as soon as possible. Delaying treatment can cause more damage to your teeth and may result in an increase in the cost of treatment.
